Adobe Acrobat Reader Unspecified Heap Corruption Vulnerability

Adobe Acrobat Reader is prone to a heap-based buffer-overflow vulnerability because the application fails to properly bounds-check malicious PDF files, resulting in a heap-based buffer overflow.

Successfully exploiting this issue may allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code in the context of the victim user running the affected application. Failed exploit attempts will likely result in denial-of-service conditions.

An attacker could exploit this issue by enticing a victim to open a malicious PDF file.
